According to "The Monitor and Merrimac: Both Sides of the Story", Greene said
"I kept the Monitor either moving around the circle or around the enemy, and endeavored to place our shots as near amidships as possible, where Captain Worden believed we had already broken through her armor. Once we ran out of the circle for a moment to adjust a piece of machinery, and I learn some of our friends feared that we were drawing out of the fight. The Merrimac took the opportunity to head for Norfolk. As soon as our machinery was adjusted we followed her, and got near enough to fire a parting shot.
